Stand Against the Anonymous Right-Wing Attack Machine

    1. Petition by

      Alliance for Justice

The attack against LAANE is consistent with the broader effort to cripple progressive causes and leaders. And as the recent assault on Planned Parenthood reminds us, there are people willing to do almost anything to achieve their aim. We need to send a strong message that secret attacks like these have no place in our democracy.

This petition in support of LAANE is co-sponsored by Alliance for Justice, People for the American Way, East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy, the Center on Policy Initiatives, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice, In the Public Interest, Partnership for Working Families and UNITE HERE. Click here to read an open letter from these and other groups, standing by LAANE and denouncing the anonymous attacks.

      It is an outrage that filthy rich political radicals can use their wealth to control our political system and corrupt our media to do their bidding! Yet the issue doesn't even get a true hearing in the once hallowed halls of congress, which has degenerated into a neurotic and cash-controlled kindergarten.

      With lucre-loaded patrons like the Koch brothers & propaganda channels like FOX cheerleading for the unsustainable, unjust plutocracy in power, the GOP seems to be hell-bent on provoking a revolution in America or at the very least a class war. Republicans are either for the People or against us -- and one glance through any newspaper in any state makes it clear that the GOP is embracing anti-American policies!!!

      LAANE works extremely hard to protect the rights of those less fortunate. They also bring together incredible and diverse groups of organizations to create positive and comprehensive change in the community. They train volunteers with the tools to make their voices heard !!!!

      Fishing efforts like this are designed to chill organizing and speech. We can't afford to let LAANE stand alone.

      In evaluating attacks on important organizations such as LAANE, knowing the ideological, financial, or other interests of the attackers is as important, as the content of the attacks themselves, often more important. While such attacks are most frequently associated with right wing politics, we should insist that the identity of attackers be publicized regardless of where they come from.
